‘skyfall’ gets bond back to basics By roger Moore MCT

movie review

kyfall” is far and away the best and the most British of the daniel craig-James Bond movies. director Sam Mendes (“road to perdition”) gets Bond back to the basics: bullets, babes, big-time bad guys and bawdy humor. and the result is an entertaining romp, an old (spy) school Bond film that reins in the more violent and germanic Bond of Marc forster’s “Quantum of Solace.” in the film’s opening gambit, Bond bites the bullet. he’s accidentally shot while wrestling with a generic villain on the roof of a train speeding through turkey. Since he’s chased this guy by car and motorbike through the crowded bazaars and narrow streets of istanbul (and settings from “taken 2”), spy chief M (Judi dench) is willing to risk the marksmanship of a fellow agent, played with a pizazz by naomie harris, bestknown as the sexy witch of the “pirates of the caribbean” movies. what Bond was trying to nab was a computer hard drive with a “list” on it. Some supervillain with wikileaks tendencies wants to expose spies.

 (out of five stars) director: sam mendes cast: daniel craig, judi dench, javier Bardem, naomie harris, Ben whishaw, ralph Fiennes rated: pg-13 for intense violent sequences throughout, some sexuality, language and smoking running time: 2 hours, 23 minutes what did you think?: Find this review at charleston and offer your opinion of the film.


Bond getting “killed” means that he’s failed. and that M has failed, too. The fallout for 007 is an obituary. for M, it’s a political raking over the coals, where she’s called an “old fashioned” relic of a bygone era, “the golden age of espionage.” “we can’t keep living in the shadows,” her new boss, the intelligence minister (ralph fiennes), tells her. “There are no more shadows.” we, of course, know better. when Mi6 is hacked and bombed, Bond comes back from his babe-and-beers and drinking games (very indiana Jones) to save the day.

Judi Dench stars in “Skyfall.” except he’s gotten old. he’s lost a step. and he couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn with a walther ppk. no matter, M won’t have anybody else. The biggest problem with the first two craig Bonds, both films of which were huge hits, was the villains. This time, oscar winner Javier Bardem shows up as a murderous hacker with a Julian assange blond mop top. and he brings the pain — and the homoerotic undertones (ok, overtones). The writing — three screenwriters pitched in — is jokier, crisper. The “Bond girl” is played by the ultraexotic Berenice Marlohe. and there’s a new quartermaster, “Q,” played by

Daniel Craig as James Bond in “Skyfall.” waif-thin Ben whishaw in a radical reinterpretation of a witty role that has been beloved by fans of the series for nearly 50 years. “were you expecting an exploding pen? we don’t really go in for that anymore.” yes, this marks 50 years of James Bond films, and Mendes & co. use the film as an excuse to joke about age and trot out old props and older actors (dench and

photographs By Francois duhamel/sony pictures/ap

albert finney). Mendes gets that the familiar ingredients are what have made this series, and that “reinventing” Bond was never necessary. he just needed a new suit. The finale is straight out of John wayne’s “rio Bravo,” and the violent set pieces — ranging from Shanghai and Macao to parliament and the bunkers of london — are blandly predictable.

But that’s kind of the point here. This is action comfort food, from the brand of gun and martini recipe to the quips and coital interludes. it’s all good, clean, British fun. “Skyfall” — the title’s a tease to a third-act surprise — ensures continuity in that comfort food: that as long as there’s a Britain, there will be a “Bond, James Bond” to look after its interests.

the best and worst of

James bond

By colin covert Star Tribune (Minneapolis)


oth as a spy and a filmseries brand, James Bond is invincible. The franchise, celebrating its 50th anniversary with this week’s u.S. release of “Skyfall,” is the longest-lived in movie history. adjusting for inflation, it’s also the most lucrative. The Bond formula of exotic locales, exquisite women, elegant tailoring and extreme danger spawned scads of imitators, but outlasted them all through sheer evolutionary agility. The films regained their youth and topicality with each new leading man, from “dr. no’s” echoes of the cuban missile crisis to “Skyfall’s” cyber-terrorism. That potent cocktail of old and new enables Bond to span a multitude of periods, locales and adversaries. Jason Bourne, John Mcclane or ethan hunt could never fit as smoothly in 1962 Jamaica and 2012 Shanghai. Bond’s wide appeal began with ian fleming’s cold war spy novels, which cast his hero as a lethal mix of British gentleman and blunt instrument. cary grant was approached to take the role. fleming was displeased when Sean connery was cast, calling him “an overdeveloped stunt man.” But as audiences embraced connery, the novelist was won over. in later books, fleming even gave 007 a partly Scots ancestry. in the years since, Bond has matured from a gadgetequipped action figure to a three-dimensional character. M has morphed from Bernard lee to Judi dench. The more times change, the more the iconic spy endures. Though his monomaniacal

enemies hoped to control the world, it’s Bond who achieved global domination.


Best Bond: Sean connery and daniel craig. Six actors have played ian fleming’s lethal spy in the eon productions films. The best? it’s a tie between the man who launched the series and the man who rescued it. Sean connery and daniel craig capture Bond’s ruthless cruelty and cold charisma. each knows that even an iconic role calls for some actual acting, and when the scene calls for it they get deep in the game. and both men have a potent physical presence. They look as if they could flatten an adversary without help from one of Q’s chloroform-emitting fountain pens. fate dealt each actor an advantage in this sweepstakes. connery established the Bond brand, setting the competitive bar high for those following him. george lazenby was more athletic, timothy dalton brought a classical actor’s dour focus to the part, pierce Brosnan had the best feel for devil-may-

care humor. But they just weren’t connery. craig’s casting ignited a firestorm of controversy (a blond Bond? unthinkable!), but his brooding, muscular portrayal proved his critics wrong. his debut, the ambitious series reboot “casino royale,” introduced a stripped-down, modern, more thoughtful style to the franchise. craig plays a spy who feels remorse when colleagues die, who sometimes blinks before he pulls the trigger, and struggles with his violent impulses. he’s a Bond who can deliver a crisp right cross, and a bruising emotional wallop. and he doesn’t care if his martini is shaken or stirred. Worst Bond: roger Moore roger Moore is the longestrunning 007 to date, and the least suited to the role. More lounge lizard than cobra, incompetent in action scenes, Moore faced lightweight, forgettable villains, shifting the films’ tone from drama with a dash of irony to selfmockery. hard to decide if Moore’s lowest point was donning a clown disguise in “octopussy” or his drowsy, austin powers-quality sexytime with grace Jones in “a view to a kill.”

mgm/ua entertainment co.

Sean Connery and Honor Blackman star ”Goldfinger.” chilling. and his laser-beam vasectomy machine? Sheer genius. Worst villain: ernst Stavro Blofeld The ultra-diabolical villain of a half-dozen Bond films, overplayed to the hammy hilt by telly Savalas, charles gray and donald pleasence. inspired Mike Myers’ dr. evil. having a white pussycat, a Mao jacket and a secret volcano base full of minions in orange jumpsuits is not the same as having a personality.

Worst Bond Girl: Bibi dahl in “for your eyes only,”

this nymphet skating star (lynn-holly Johnson, 22) meets Bond and promptly breaks into his hotel room, showers and offers herself to the irresistible spy (Moore, 54 and looking it). fortunately, 007 refuses, making Bibi the only girl to be chased out of bed by James Bond.

The upcoming “Skyfall” is the first Bond film to be released since “avatar” made 3-d a common and often lucrative practice for blockbusters. “Skyfall” producer Barbara

Broccoli said in a recent interview, “3-d is fantastic for the right material, but we’re not sure Bond is the right way to go. with our movies, there’s a lot of challenges to 3-d, particularly when you’ve got a lot of action and a lot of quick cutting.” Broccoli and her halfbrother, Michael g. wilson, have shepherded the last seven Bond films, preserving the franchise as a family business. “Skyfall” follows 2008’s “Quantum of Solace,” released

no subordinate but the main villain of the piece. played by austrian actress lotte lenya, she is a genuine sadist. She tests red grant (robert Shaw), the assassin chosen to kill Bond, by punching him in the stomach with brass knuckles, remarking coolly, “he seems fit enough.” ultimately she goes after 007 herself, slashing at him with a shoe with a poisoned dagger in the toe. lenya said that when she met people even years later, they looked at her shoes first. Worst Bad Girl: May day campy villain grace Jones fails to energize “a view to a kill.” The pop diva’s reedlike physique makes May’s superhuman strength a cartoonish absurdity, and her amorous grappling with Moore scarred a generation of moviegoers.

No plans for Bond films in 3-D

a year before James cameron’s 3-d epic. Shooting in 3-d, which requires larger cameras, can be cumbersome, and quick action shots can be awkward because viewers’ eyes don’t adjust rapidly enough. Still, Broccoli left the door open for things to change. daniel craig is signed for at least two more Bond films, which will be the 24th and 25th in the franchise. neither is being planned in 3-d.

The Aston Martin is considered James Bond’s car of choice, as seen in “quantum of Solace,” though the DB5 is Bond’s signature vehicle. The ultimate tricked-out ride. accessories include rotating license plates, machine guns behind lowering headlights and passenger ejector seat. The dashboard mapping device predicted modern gpS systems, its rotating tire-slashers inspired the craze for spinny hubcaps, and its ability to lay down a trail of oil and smoke predated the yugo by 20 years. Worst: crocodile minisubmarine plenty of competition here.

There’s the missile-firing boombox from “The living daylights” (“a ghetto blaster,” Q explains). The invisible car from “die another day.” The gondola/hovercraft in “Moonraker” that elicits a double-take from a nearby pigeon. But nothing tops the croco-boat Bond uses to infiltrate kamal khan’s palace in “octopussy.” Because if you want to escape notice, the best way is to motor up in an inert reptile.

logan, co-owners of outta My huevos. They’ve been in business for about three months, so Masingill said they hope Saturday’s rodeo earns them some exposure. The truck mostly serves brunch favorites such as waffles, biscuits and breakfast burritos, but Masingill said they also feature a few lunch options including hamburgers and Blt’s. “we wanted to make it all fresh, homemade food,” Masingill said. “we make everything ourselves, down to the english muffins or the chorizo for the breakfast burritos.” Masingill and logan met at Mccrady’s where they serve tables. The food truck is a first stab at entrepreneurship for both of them. “we’ve picked up some things working in a restaurant and seeing how it all works,” Masingill said. “we decided that we were ready to do our own thing and start our own business. we

The crowd dances as Tidal Jive performs. both love to cook and we love food, so we were like,

‘let’s start a food truck.’ ” a main component of their business plan is to include as many local ingredients in their food as possible. Masingill’s favorite menu item is the veggie wrap, which contains goat cheese from Split creek farms, veggies from ambrose farms and eggs from chickens raised by locals celeste and John albers. “we have really great local products with all the flourishing farms around town,

so why not take advantage of that?” Masingill said. The dulce truck, owned and operated by ericka kalinowski, also likes to showcase charleston products. in addition to her homemade gourmet deserts, kalinowski serves tea from the charleston tea plantation. “in keeping with my theme to use local ingredients whenever i can, i decided to do sweet tea since charleston is home to america’s only (working) tea plantation,” she said.

kalinowski likes to feature inventive teas on her menu, such as blueberry basil tea and lemon lavender tea. as for her desert, kalinowski said she recommends her vanilla bean cheesecake, which is topped with a bacon caramel sauce, chocolate sauce or an orange cranberry sauce. She’ll also feature a seasonal pumpkin pie, a six-layer coconut cake, chocolate mousse and other gourmet baked goods on Saturday’s menu.

“i’m just excited to get people to taste my deserts,” she said. “i can’t wait to see their reactions.” The food truck rodeo is an opportune time to get acquainted with charleston’s food trucks, but that’s not all there is to enjoy about the event. four local bands will perform throughout the day, so guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and stick around. Just like the food at the event, the music will include something for everyone. eddie Bush and The Mayhem will perform Southern rock and country originals, old you will play their special brand of blues rock, tidal Jive will perform groovy funk and the Jefferson coker Band will play their blend of americana and folk-rock. Beer and wine will be available during the event, but guests are asked to leave coolers at home. The food truck rodeo is a family-friendly event, and pets on leashes are welcome.

frey of the eagles sets his standards high By harriS cohen Special to The Post and Courier


combination of heading up one of the most successful american bands, a successful solo career during a lengthy “temporary” hiatus of that band and a notable acting career could have led glenn frey to take it easy. instead, The eagles re-reunited in 2007 and released the charttopping double album “long road out of eden,” and frey plays the new kid in town with his recently released dynamic collection of standards titled “after hours.” frey related a desire to record an album like this for the past 20 years, but The eagles, raising a family and other matters delayed the project. now with more time, the most altruistic reason drove frey: both of his parents are still living. “My father is 91 and my mother is 88. i wanted to finish the record while they are still around and for them to enjoy for a long time to come. This is the music they listened to when they were growing up,” frey said. frey said he listens to the style of music he chose for the album a lot, as it is a nice diversion from what he typically plays. he was familiar with many songs of the era.

neil young & crazy horse Psychedelic Pill/Reprise


“dreamin’ about the way things sound now, write them down in my book.” So says neil young on “driftin’ Back,” the nearly 28-minute long opening track on “psychedelic pill.” it’s a pretty mellow beginning, especially for a band with as rowdy a reputation as crazy horse. Still, it’s neil young at his best. and when the second song, the album’s title track, kicks in, we get the crazy horse we’ve grown to love through songs such as

“hey hey, My My (into The Black)” and “powderfinger.” young and his band aren’t getting any younger, but instead of going gently into their winter years, neil young & crazy horse are building a snow fort and digging in via their music. The loose, guitar-heavy songs on the album range from country stomps such as “Born in ontario” and “twisted road” to all-out rockers such as “She’s always dancing” and “walk like a giant.”

with the many power pop bands currently out doing their respective things in the music world, one might think that the musical style would be easy to master. nope. for every cheap trick, Big Star and The Smithereens, there are two dozen other bands that try but never quite achieve the true power pop sound. nine times Blue is one band that gets it right. The infectious pop hooks and catchy lyrics on “falling Slowly” show that these

guys have done their homework, and that they are the real thing. The leadoff title track is reminiscent of The gin Blossoms with its bouncy rhythm. “i can’t See you” finds lead singer kirk waldrop channeling The Smithereens’ pat dinizio, while the lovely “Serena” sounds like what might happen if crosby, Stills & nash teamed up with dinizio and his boys for a song. “fun and games” just might be the best elvis

when i heard australian musician claude hay’s album “deep fried Satisfied” a couple of years ago, i was immediately impressed. That admiration grew when i learned that the songwriter not only put on one-man shows by way of loop pedals, but also built his own instruments. even if the potential novelty of those additional abilities doesn’t matter to you, once you get an earful of hay’s electric blues and roots music, you’ll be hard

pressed to find anything negative to say. employing elements of led Zeppelin, aerosmith and taj Mahal, hay actually improves upon the goodness that was “deep fried Satisfied” with his new album, “i love hate you.” The raw title track sets the mood for the album nicely, while tracks such as “Stone face,” “narrow Mind” and “don’t Bring Me down” demonstrate hay’s incredible ear for a great blues riff. a cover of The Beatles’

This is the second album young has released with crazy horse this year, and while the previous release, the cover album “americana,” was fun, “psychedelic pill” marks a triumphant return to the sort of music that cemented this band’s reputation as one of the best live rock acts out there. key tracks: “psychedelic pill,” “Born in ontario,” “she’s always dancing”

nine times blue Falling Slowly/Renegade


costello song he never wrote. while the influences on the album are obvious, the music is undeniably original, and there are only a couple of tunes that don’t totally pass muster. here’s hoping that nine times Blue gets the widespread recognition they obviously deserve. key tracks: “Falling slowly,” “i can’t see you,” “Fun and games”

claude hay

I Love Hate You/128 Records


“come together” finds hay stripping the tune down like an old engine and completely overhauling it. The end result is a complete reimagining of the classic rock track that has to be heard to be believed. This guy is red hot, and he’s only getting better with each release. key tracks: “stone Face,” “narrow mind,” “come together” — By devin grant

festival of lights james island county park kicks off the holiday season

It takes months to get things set up for the Holiday Festival of Lights, and months to take it all down. By Stratton lawrence

Special to The Post and Courier


wo million light bulbs — that’s where the holiday festival of lights organizers lost count in their tally of the glowing orbs of cheer that decorate James island county park for two months each winter. “two million and one!” corrects Jim Murray, a volunteer at the park since the mid-’90s. Three nights a week during the festival, Murray dons the costume of wattson the giant red light Bulb, greeting children as they explore the winter wonderland and Santa’s village. “The best case scenario is that they grab my hand and say, ‘i love you and i want to take you home,’ ” laughs Murray. “The worst case is that they scream and run away. But really, it’s a hoot.” on a recent evening, Murray

was one of a few dozen volunteers stringing strands of lights over bushes and trees along the threemile driving route that now features over 750 shining displays. among the other volunteers are dave Striebich and Beth Brannan, a St. petersburg Beach, fla., couple in their third year as members of the campground host club. fourteen couples spend nearly three months at the park beginning oct. 1, collectively volunteering more than 4,100 hours in exchange for an rv campsite and a universal pass to charleston’s museums, plantations and attractions. “we meet some great people and have a lot of fun together,” Striebich said of the experience. “our job for five weeks is screwing and unscrewing, swapping out light bulbs on the displays.” in the month leading up to the festival’s opening weekend, around 200,000 faded and worn-out bulbs

The result is a light show that frequently ranks among lists of the top 10 in the country, alongside those in bigger cities like new orleans and atlanta. it’s been voted a top 20 event by the Southeastern tourism Society, receiving attention from The travel channel and Southern living magazine. “it definitely keeps us going through the winter,”

said woodard. “when most campgrounds around the country are ghost towns, we’re packed for the season.”

A local tradition

last year, the festival of lights drew 225,000 people during its two-month run, accounting for about a third of the park’s annual attendance. it’s grown to encompass far more than just a driving tour, as well. Sand sculptor damon farmer returned to the park this year to spend nine days carving a sequel to last

year’s “Scuba Santa,” featuring St. nick taking presents to little mermaid girls. with his tool belt of tiny knives and scrapers, farmer begins with 50 tons of sand, held in place by wooden boards wrapped around the giant pile. when he’s finished, the wood will be gone, leaving an intricate sculpture of impermanent art behind. “it’s job security — planned obsolescence,” said farmer, shrugging off the notion that seeing his work swept away is a bittersweet aspect of his chosen me-

Folks can take a train-ride tour of the displays. dium. “a cubic yard of sand weighs about a ton-and-ahalf, so there’s no moving it.” This year’s design features Santa picking up his (abundant) mail, reading a long list from one hopeful child while his elves pack up gifts into bags behind him. it’s one of the first things visitors will see upon parking at the drive’s halfway point. after strolling through the enchanted forest walking trail, Santa’s village fea-

tures an 18-animal carousel as well as fire pits for roasting marshmallows, oversize greeting cards, the chance to take a photograph with Santa and a portable climbing wall. in the winter wonderland, sweets and burgers are available from vendors like donner’s delights. and although it may be tempting, there’s no eating allowed at the gingerbread house competition. nearby, two shops feature collectibles and holiday gifts

that include the festival’s annual collectible ornament, featuring a charleston Single house for 2012. finally, for an up-close look at the light displays, climb aboard the festival train for a tour around the festival. on certain nights (available at the park’s website), special events include visits with Mrs. claus, outdoor movies, live music and ice sculpture competitions. after the show begins, volunteers like campground host Striebich transition from bulb replacement to manning the actual attractions, including conducting the train rides. Staff remains on call — it’s not uncommon for confused (real) deer to knock over a display, including the lit-up grazing (fake) deer along the roadway. at the end of each evening, it requires a full hour to power down the 2,500 breakers circulating electricity to each display, including new lights that are timed to move with accompanying music. over the course of its 23-year history, the holiday festival of lights has ushered cars with tags from all 50 states through its gates. Because the festival charges entry by the car, not by the person, it’s a great excuse to gather the family and pack in tightly for a visit to a magical, illuminated wonderland. Just make sure that everybody gets a good view through the windows, and don’t forget your gloves for cupping a mug of hot chocolate around the bonfire.

Six pasta dishes are available as half orders and prodigious portions assured us we made the right call ordering the smaller size, and even had lunch leftovers. orecchiette ($18.50, $11.75) were topped with shrimp, sausage bits and fresh spinach in garlic and olive oil napped with a bit of alfredo sauce. densely textured and imbued with the heat of the rendered sausage, this dish married rich and salty to a robust finish. The eggplant a la Michael is a keeper and can be ordered as an entree ($16.95) or side ($5). The eggplant is peeled, thinly sliced and pleasantly enriched with meatballs, sausage, tomato

and mozzarella. Shrimp diablo parmigiana ($18.50) failed to deliver a spicy “zuppa” and the shrimp were tucked in with a blanket of cheese that played against their tender sweetness. This is a dish where less would be more and parmesan better served than mozzarella. tenderloin steaks ($25.95, $26.95) replace the rib-eyes of the north charleston location; chicken and veal are equally balanced on the menu. kudos to them for an italian dessert menu ($5.95): cannoli, tiramisu, cheesecake and cassata cake. The latter marries sponge cake, a creamy filling similar to what you find in a cannoli and an almond-flavored icing. try it with espresso for the flavors of sweet Sicily. The servers are well-

auctions, programs, shows will keep you busy e

very year about this time, redux puts on its annual art auction, usually one of their best events of the year. redux is so much more than a place to see cool art. for the past decade, it has provided studio space for artists, fine art instruction in a variety of media (and for all ages) and, of course, provided some rather evocative and innovative art to the public. The auction is a way of helping redux continue this mission while dressing your house with some amazing art from local creatives. “This particular annual event is critical to the fundraising efforts of redux. The goal is to raise at least $25,000 in this year’s auction of work by mostly redux Studio artists, which will directly support redux’s ongoing mission,” said Stephanie coakley, executive director at redux. The 10th annual art auction will be 6:30-10 p.m. Saturday. tickets are $40 in advance, $45 at the door for this cocktail-attire event. guitarist gregory guay will provide the live entertainment. call 722-0697 or go to for more.

ace’s on Bridge


Against three no-trump, West leads the spade queen. How do you plan to make nine tricks? Outsidethediamonds,youhave fivetoptricks.Soyouneedaminimum of four diamond tricks to makeyourcontract.Supposeyou win the spade lead with the ace and finesse the diamond jack. If thefinesseloses,thespadereturn will mean that you won’t make nine tricks unless the diamond 10 drops. This would be the case even when the diamonds were 3-3, for the entry to the diamonds has been removed. Accordingly, the best approach is to win the first spade (for fear of a club shift) and play a diamond to the king. Then continue by overtaking the diamond jack with dummy’s ace, even if West

has followed with a small card. Here, since the diamond queen has put in an appearance, you can simply dislodge the diamond 10 from East’s hand and make nine tricks: two spades, two hearts, four diamonds and a club. If the diamonds had been 3-3, the third round of diamonds would have established the suit, with the spade king as the entry to cash them. You will succeed when either defender begins with asingletonordoubletondiamond queen or 10. As we have seen, dummy’s 9-8-7 is then good enough to allow you to knock out the remaining diamond honor, letting you collect four diamond tricks and the contract. This gives you a better than twothirdschancetomakeyourgame.

Veterans grateful for acknowledgment

i mustache you a question


By reBekah Bradford Special to The Post and Courier The mustache seems like it’s here to stay. in fact, it’s gained iconic status in pop culture, and you can find its image on pint glasses, t-shirts, even on kidrobot’s labbit. heck, the month of november is now widely known as Movember. if you’re not in the loop, guys grow mustaches to raise awareness and funds for men’s health issues, specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. check it out at So this week’s trivia is all about the ’stache. current trivia champ greg larson is taking on gail ortiz, who works as a tutor.

philippe halsman/philadelphia museum oF art/ howard greenBerg gallery/ap

We wonder how much wax it took Salvador Dali to keep his gravity-defying ’stache like that.


1. what snack food mascot sports a large ’stache on the label? 2. what famous game show host shocked the world when he appeared without his signature mustache in 2001? 3. this director of “camp” movies grew his pencil-thin mustache in honor of little richard. 4. marcel duchamp was known for his parody of what famous painting when he added a mustache to it? 5. this artist’s flamboyantly oiled mustache was as avant garde as his paintings. 6. this former wrestler’s signature look included a bandanna, yellow and red colors, and a big blond ’stache. 7. one of the greatest writers of american literature, samuel clemens, sported a thick mustache and used what pen name? 8. this ’80s television character got to drive a red Ferrari around oahu while he solved cases as a private investigator. 9. this Belgian detective with a meticulous mustache is the only fictional character to have received an obituary in the new york times when he died. 10. seen in movies and graphic novels, this mustache is usually worn by the villain and is named for a fictional character of asian origin.

greg’s answers

1. the face on the pringles can. 2. alex trebek 3. gotta be john waters. 4. the scream 5. salvador dali 6. the hulk — i mean hogan, not the green hulk. 7. mark twain 8. magnum 9. poirot 10. like a Fu manchu mustache?

conclusion greg continues his run as the head2head trivia champ, coming out one correct answer ahead of his opponent. he’ll return next week to attempt a third victory.

gail’s answers

1. what’s on the pringles can. 2. the guy on jeopardy, alex trebek. 3. is it john waters? 4. the mona lisa 5. i can’t remember if picasso had a mustache. 6. hulk hogan 7. mark twain 8. magnum p.i. 9. i’m drawing a blank. 10. Fu manchu

correct answers 1. julius pringles 2. alex trebek 3. john waters 4. the mona lisa 5. salvador dali 6. hulk hogan

7. mark twain 8. thomas magnum, p.i. 9. hercule poirot 10. Fu manchu

ear aBBy: as veterans day approaches, may i share a few guidelines that can be helpful when interacting with veterans or service members? 1. it is never ok to ask a veteran if he or she has killed someone or to joke about it. if we have, we can’t even talk about it with our spouses, much less a stranger. 2. when you thank us for our service or pay for our meal, it is really appreciated. 3. please don’t tell us that wars are a waste of dollars or lives or were fought for oil. what we hear is that, in your opinion, our best friend died for nothing. we know many people disagree with war, but it’s better to keep your opinions to yourself. 4. Many of us now have ptSd. if you see us acting anxious or moving away from crowds, turning our backs to the wall or fidgeting, simple kindness or a little distraction will be appreciated. talk to us and give us some breathing room. 5. please remember that 15 percent of those who serve in the military are women, and some have been in combat. it’s better to ask, “are you a veteran?” rather than, “was your husband a soldier?” 6. as with any person who has a disability, please do not stare at us. we can be sensitive about our scars or injuries and would prefer not to be asked to relive a difficult

dear aBBy experience by being quizzed about what happened. please also understand that war injuries today are very different from in the past and are often not visible. it is not ok to tell someone they “don’t look disabled” or appear to need help. Those of us with disabilities appreciate light conversation and assistance if we look like we are in need. it was my pleasure to serve our country. — aManda c., u.S. arMy diSaBled veteran DEAR AMANDA C.: Thank you for your service. And thank you, too, for your helpful suggestions, which are sure to be appreciated not only by civilians, but also by active and retired members of our military. Readers, as the war in Afghanistan winds down, many thousands of service members are returning home and entering the job market. Please, if possible, honor their courage, dedication and sacrifice by doing your part and providing them with employment. Considering what they have done for us, it is the least we can do to show our appreciation.
